by enemies bent on our destruction. jrf write-in this deal will be another obama administration failure. susan, good morning. you on with trita parsi. caller: thank you for educating us on what is happening. since this was a big issue, my question on the heels of the lady before us, how did that treaty and any of the safeguards having to do with compliance of nuclear weapons mixed in with the agreement that was just passed this weekend? are we ignoring what was discussed at the united nations or did the united nation's not include anything to do with nuclear weapons used for mass destruction? guest: the treaty is the basis of this agreement. it is specifically mentioned in the text as well is on the last page of the deal. that is something the iranians insisted on. their interpretation is that there is such a right to enrich such a thing as the right to enrich. i do not think the united states has had any objections to that. the difference has been the difference of interpretation of article four of the treaty, whether there is a right to enrich or not. using that as a legal framework,

. thank you for joining us by phone this morning. biggest takeaways from the president speech in san francisco yesterday? despite think everything, the talk that immigration will get done this year, is is that president obama and the white house is committed to pushing for this. it seems the president has not of gettinghe idea something done in the next few weeks, even though it seems a lot of people on capitol hill have. that speech yesterday, the president seemed inclined to support breaking the immigration reform effort down into pieces rather than a big, sweeping senate bill. does that mean it is more likely to get something done? they have been indicating it is something they would be willing to go along with. i think the division between having it in pieces and a comprehensive bill is not as great as it seems. ultimately the democrats say they would be ok with having a bill in pieces, so long as every single aspect gets done, and that includes a path to citizenship to those here illegally. whether or not they do it in pieces, democrats will only go along with it, provided every
